    I'm currently in year 12, and I'm considering doing Economics and French at university. I'd really like to go to Durham, but would it be sensible to apply without having further maths A level? (They require an A grade in maths, I hope to take maths, French and chemistry A2)

    Further Maths is not required for Economics for a majority of unis. It is 'like' a necessity for unis like Cambridge, LSE, Warwick, UCL, although you can still get in without it if you are still a top candidate.

    Do you mean like take FM and drop chemistry now? Or would taking some extra modules next year be any use?

    I'm already half way through my A levels, there's no chance I'll be allowed to pick it up now!
